The Audi A1 is an appealing small car with an upmarket interior and pert handling, but it's starting to feel its age elsewhereread the full model review
Trim:S Line Nav
One of the most extreme of the A1’s regular trim levels, S line brings sports-focused styling modifications rather than a much longer standard equipment list. You get a bodykit, 17in alloy wheels, part-leather sports seats and xenon headlights. It has an even stiffer suspension set-up than Sport – although, again, you can go for the softer SE set-up at no cost. We don’t think there’s enough extra useful kit here to warrant the additional charge over the Sport model, so we’d give it a miss.
The sole diesel option in the range has enough power and low-down shove to make the car feel brisk – and you shouldn’t have to work it too hard to maintain normal progress. That’s lucky, because this engine is also gruff and noisy. Like the entry-level petrol, it is available with a five-speed manual or seven-speed automatic gearbox.
